Valerie Leverett in her Farnham workshopOn the industrial estate by that bend in Farnham is Valerie Leverett Memorials named for their principal Valerie Leverett.  Inevitably computers are involved in the design process but the headstones are still hand made.  On that saddest of occasions when a child has died it may be that materials can be recycled to reduce the expense to younger parents.

Parham airfield museumSaturday afternoon we visited Parham airfield and though the museum was closed it's open Sundays until the end of the month when it closes until next spring.  The following afternoon 800 straw bales worth some 18,000 were set alight.

Brundish harvest supperWe arrived at the Brundish harvest supper last night far too late for the beef casserole but got a glass of good wine, a taste of the excellent cheese board and to go with the coffee home made sweets.  Though the peppermint creams were the superstar models the chocolate squares contained Brundish foraged hazelnuts ... well you can work it off with some zumba.

The clocks go back on the Sunday after next, that's the 26th.

Lynne Hanson at Easton Farm Park♫ Depping for Brigitte Demeyer at Easton Farm Park last night Canadian Lynne Hanson arrived on crutches and her whole left leg in a hinged splint.  'Are you fed up of telling people how you hurt your leg?'  'No'  'How did you hurt your leg?'  'Playing touch football, I twisted awkwardly'  'US or Canadian rules?'  'Errrr'  'Three downs or four?'  'Three'  'So Canadian rules then.'  Would be very nice to have her back at next year's Maverick. ♫

There's much bollo about children's nanny Vivian Maier but she was an impressive street photographer and surprisingly seemed able to do it in isolation.  Finding Vivian Maier 3pm tomorrow at Aldeburgh Cinema might show how she formed herself as a snapper.
